Fancy Whiskey Cocktail

The.Cocktail.Spirit.with.Rober's picture
The Old Fashioned is an old and distinguished cocktail, as well as one of my personal favorites. Many may point to its origins as being at the Pendennis Club in Louisville Kentucky around 1890, but its true roots go much deeper. Today we call it the “Old Fashioned” because it is a cocktail that is made in the true "old fashioned" way. You might even say it is the original cocktail, although in those days it would simply have been known as a “whiskey cocktail”, which with a little fancy embellishments becomes the “Fancy Whiskey Cocktail”.

  Bourbon whiskey 2 Ounce (Makers 46)
